Gamers... what are you playing?


#250

On a bit of a short games kick right now. Did “Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons” earlier this week and started up “Transistor” last night. Might do Abzu soon.


#251

How do you like it compared to the other games? I used to grind out RAIDEN IV so much. Ikaruga, too. :slight_smile:


#252

I’ve asked Santa for The Outer Worlds and will get Phoenix Point myself prolly as a day 1 release in no small part because Gollop.


#253

It’s not bad, Raiden IV is still the best Raiden imo.


#254

Seiken Densetsu 3 and the Halo series coming to Steam soonish. I’m really looking forward to SD3 in 3D and might finally play those other Halo games (played part 1 and a part of part 2 years ago).

@White_Noise: Please let me know what you think about Abzu, I love the thought of it but I fear it might get somewhat more boring than relaxing…


#255

I don’t play video games anymore, but I’ll be playing Phoenix Point.


#256

Anybody on here blasting Modern Warfare?

…unlikely but worth a shot…

Add ya boy @nostromer#5203833

Full crossplay!

I like Abzu and Journey style games with the lightest of puzzle action and just fantastic worlds to play in. Of the two, Journey is superior because it has a more realized “story” than Abzu. Both are so short (like under 2 hours) I think you’d have a hard time being bored because by the time you realized you don’t like it it would be over. Play for the pretty pictures and you won’t be disappointed.

Phoenix Point out tomorrow. I preordered it with the season pass because I’m kidding no-one - I’ll be getting each DLC as soon as its available :smiley:


#259

Haha Phoenix Point is brutal. A shock to nobody.

The free-aiming is brilliant. The combat mechanics are great. The graphics are fucking terrible, its like Fallout crossed with turd but in high-res to make it seem modern and swish. Animation is smooth, music atmospheric.

Pretty much what I expected. Not very far in at all but initial impression is jolly good. Goodbye many hours to come :slight_smile:

Here in russia so many servers with old CS 1.6. The average player’s age is 25-30 years. :smiley: Just so that you probably understand the age of the average player in CSGO is 10-14 years old.


#261

That’s what happens when something incredible (like the original CS) comes out when you’re 10-14. Years later, these CSGO guys will also be frozen in time. Just wait


#262

What are you not playing edition: PS3 refurb just started overheating in less than a week. I hope gamestop honors the shit out of their awesome work :frowning:


#263

CS 1.6 is the best CS. The big thing here that it can run on super shitty computers so everyone can play it. Well balanced, fun, and what I liked the most were custom servers. DM, surf maps, fy, aim… I really hated CSGO because they made it to be more “competitive” and it’s always bunch of retards yelling at each other over lost match like their life has no other meaning. This toxic gameplay really makes me hate every competitive game in the market. Guys, it’s only a game.


#264

Wife wanted a Nintendo Switch for playing on the big screen. Any stand out games I should look at? Only ever really games on a PC.


#265

I’ve got a whole list of PC / switch indie crossovers scattered across genres, but if you’re talking about nintendo exclusives I’m pretty much useless.

  • Celeste
  • Axiom Verge
  • Cuphead
  • Shovel Knight (hey, I think we just got a massive update today!)
  • Enter the Gungeon
  • Skullgirls
  • Torchlight II
  • Diablo III

Of course my wife prefers to play exclusives, so I can’t wait until she gets sick of it. This will be my replay-list.


#266

Now there was some mindless heaps of fun. Enjoyed it a lot, Friday night silliness with friend and a few light refreshements.


#267

If you want something with a world you can really get sucked into, then Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a great choice. I’m not very good at video games, and not a huge Zelda fan, but I was able to enjoy that one for 20 hours or so over a few weeks. Couldn’t finish it though.

The only game I have on my switch right now is Super Mario Odyssey, and I love it to pieces. Played it all the way through twice (I’ve played all the Marios since Galaxy back on the Wii and this is far and away the best). If you or she like platformers, I doubt you can go wrong with that one. Bright, vibrant levels begging to be explored, easy enough for me to beat the main story, but getting all the power moons is a real challenge that I keep going back for a few times a year.

I have Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker on the Wii U, but they did a version for the switch too. I love that one, still plug in my Wii U on occasion to play it. It’s a really laid back puzzle/exploration game. If you like running around in the Mario games, but want an easier, slower, less frantic experience, then this is perfect. The level design is really, really good stuff.

The other stuff I play is on my friend’s switch when he comes over. If you like playing together, overcooked is fun, and so are the usual suspects like Mario Kart and Mario Party (Mario Party surprisingly so for me). I’m sure there’s more, but that’s the stuff I’ve played.

I’m looking forward to picking up Luigi’s Mansion 3 and the new Pokemon after the holidays once I’m sure no one bought them for me.


#268

Yeah. You know but matchmaking makes it more sense to play than just kill players on public servers.

@Roo_Stercogburn Please write your movie reviews. I love to read them. :laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#269

I second Breath of the Wild. It’s a masterpiece in gaming. Also HOB looks great too as does Hyper Light Drifter in the PC indy crossover category.
